Why? Seems like a waste unless your buying a big cam.

Well that's why I posted so I will know what else I'll need. So I need a big cam and I'm pretty sure an adjustable cam gear. Anything else? really appreciate the help, kinda weak in this area.

well your also probably going to have to take it to a machine shop so they can press in the valve seats. i would suggest with getting the better cam also upgrade your ignition coil and distributor. with all of that you should actually be able to feel the difference in power. unlike getting an air intake

Ok. Where can I find an distributor upgrade that fits well with my car? I have tried to upgrade it, but I couldn't find anything that was for performance. All I could find were the spark plugs and the wires which I got (NGK).
